Constance Nash

Title: Founding Partner, President

Company: VSL LTD

Location: London, UK

Constance Nash recently established an amalgamated firm through an invitation by the British government to cultivate her assets under their protective umbrella, in order to provide jobs and revenue to the U.K. with their new inward investment project. Her work has been deemed a foundation for the “Mobile Wave.” Ms. Nash Optimized Data Transmission System and Method’s inventions in Partitioning and Slice, plus software and coding is the foundation to the Mobile Wave starting in 2001, and continuing with non-obsolete data transmission technology for reducing all data to transmit via the narrow bandwidth of the Internet: Hers is the foundation of the Technology pyramid, and hers is still growing with her own innovations and new inventions. Her tier 1 law firm in entertainment and technology informed her that her and Alex’s solution to transmitting data through the Internet was a solution they called The Holy Grail, worth $50 billion in 2001: IF she could write a patent and IF she could make the Software. “That there was an international race to find the solution to reducing data to transmit low bit rate, non-buffering, problematic LOSSY AND LOSSLESS data: lossless means no loss of data being sent. But, her inventions only transmitted three percent of the received data, and yet there is no lost data: VSL’s are lossless. She co-prosecuted Australia, and all patents by flying to each patent law firm to teach the invention, so it could be protected.

Ms. Nash fought for its and her own rights, but patents was just the tip of the iceberg of the VSL in development achievement; software was and is brilliant. It is the key to the bundle of assets value. The applications she came up with, such as an image chipset inside a surveillance systems camera, when all security system cameras had external cables, changed how surveillance succeeds. That invention was not for a bandwidth transit usage on just the Internet. It proved the broad usage of the inventions themselves. “Film used to be delivered in a can, which was sent in costly film strips to theatres,” she said, recently. Today, movies can be sent digitally, to equipment she envisioned years ago. She wrote of this in her White Paper too, and showed the concept and the patent to Universal.
